Nonlinear Pulse Propagation in Fibre Gratings
A set of high-intensity pulse propagation experiments in optical fibre gratings, leading to slow propagation and soliton formation, is discussed. The results are analyzed using the nonlinear Schrödinger equation, which applies in almost the entire regime we consider here. Indeed, good quantitative agreement between experiments and theory and numerical calculations is found, except perhaps where second-order soliton dynamics is prominent.
